Wyadup Dreams

Insomnia. Sleep completely escapes me this night. My mind is wide awake while my body is very tired. No use fighting a loosing battle against a hyperactive mind racing at hyper speed. So I created this image:


Wyadup Rocks in Western Australia at dusk one magical Friday in February 2010. Magic exists although briefly. Yes the moon is real, from the original shot although slightly enlarged here. The rest is kept dark and true to the original. Wyadup Dreams. Listening to Great Lake Swimmers:

Is gravity the same for you?
Or have you fallen deeply too?
Into the light of a dream
Like unison falling into harmony

Goodnight Wyadup.

  1. " Yes the moon is real"

    Haha, you knew that would be the first thing that some of us would ask!

    Love how the whole image appears to be swirling towards the left corner. It is magic. Further and Further dreaming.

    1. Thanks mate. It does have an otherworldly look to it and I hardly touched the image, it was already magical. Just woke up, managed about 5 hours sleep in the end, now feeling slightly zombie.

    1. Thank you Eric. My developing images at night seems to be a good project. Actually I always work most creatively in the middle of the night, it just means I really get no sleep, always behind on sleep :/

  2. love the water motion too.

    damn that sleep huh, since I moved up here I don't think i've slept past 5am, catching up to me it is especially as I never get to bed at a reasonable time haha. need to buy more sun blocking objects to go over the window….. and perhaps a way of shutting up the neighbours dog…. hehe 😛

  3. Incredible image here Flemming! WA certainly has some of the most unique landscapes in this vast land I call home… Just wish I could spend more time over there!

    1. thanks Luke. 3AM creativity is the best!!! If I wasn't so bloody tired the next day I would do all images from 11pm to 4am – I am so much creative at that time. But then I wake at like 8am feeling like Death.

  4. Very nice mate, like the mood created by the dark tones and moon. Don't know about processing images at 3 in the morning. I'm just getting over processing nappies at that hour!

  5. Hi Flemming

    I've got a little catching up to do on your blog , but a quick look has revealed some pretty handy shots.

    Well done mate looks great.


    1. Cheers Merv, look very much forward to more comments from you on my older posts that you missed 🙂 You must read them, it's gold! I am dreadfully behind on blogs as well, trying to catch up.

  6. Another example of your skills in bringing out the best in another one of our “unremarkable” coastlines 😉 It is certainly a dreamy landscape and for some reason I was thinking it needed a lady on a unicorn – it has that sort of mystic folklore-ish look about it. Great work.

    1. Cheers Muzz. It is "unremarkable" the gas hub will really brighten up the place :/ I like the lady on a unicorn idea as long as there is no Enya soundtrack to accompany her 🙂

I'd love to hear your comment
